Lovely place and pics! Our Master Gardener class took a bus there 2 years ago. I couldn't make it on that date. Maybe someday I can get there. I have visited several public gardens, it is always a treat.

Teresa,

I'm sorry you missed the trip. If ever you have another opportunity, there are 30 public gardens in the Philadelphia area, so it will definitely be worth a visit. I hope you will be able to come.
